I Love What I Do

With over 30 years of experience in East Bay Residential Real Estate, my team and I genuinely care about our clients and work tirelessly to get them the best results.  We enjoy working with everyone from long-time homeowners, to discerning luxury buyers, to those making their first purchases or sale.  Our hands-on preparation of properties, marketing, and commitment to each of our clients is unwavering. With an award-winning background in design and extensive experience in marketing, I believe we're the best at transforming properties for sellers and maximizing value for them. 

As a native and long-time resident of the East Bay, I provide our clients with an incredible amount of local knowledge and an extensive network of resources.  My team lives in the communities we serve. That's why we're great at educating buyers about neighborhoods and their micro-markets.  We love guiding buyers through the process and assisting them in achieving their real estate goals. 

Our success story and sales records speak for themselves.
